Butler, Bernstein & the Hot 9 / Dee Alexander
Symphony Center Presents Jazz Series
Friday, February 27, 2015
Don’t miss this celebration of the special musical connection between New Orleans and Chicago! There is no more swaggering a genius of New Orleans piano than Henry Butler, who lives and breathes the piquant melodies, two-fisted rhythms and awesome stylistic reach of Louisiana legend Professor Longhair. Steven Bernstein has fully absorbed the exuberant sound of the melting-pot quality of New Orleans tradition, while also specializing in funk, klezmer and avant jazz.
Dee Alexander, a brilliant Chicago vocalist who is gaining worldwide attention, makes her SCP Jazz series debut as the show’s opener.
